7 Weird and Wonderful Reasons to Drive the Stuart Highway

6 Comments

The Stuart Highway is an epic drive from one end of Australia to the other. From south to north it’s full of wow moments and surprising sights. Here are just a few.

Everything Natural on a Grand Scale

The differing landscapes take your breath away. The things you don’t see every day but are so grand in scale that you can’t help but be impressed. For instance at Port Augusta there is a huge wind farm popping up on the edge of the highway which will have 50 wind turbines as part of a solar-wind hybrid plant and renewable energy project.

For those planning a driving holiday along the Stuart Highway which runs from south to north of Australia, here are a few facts and figures as they stacked up for us on a 4 week (25 day) getaway. Our travelling ‘rig’ is a Toyota Landcruiser 200 series V8 diesel, and our caravan is a 22ft Jayco Silverline.

Visit Katherine NT

3 Comments

One of the bigger and more well known areas to visit on a trip through the Northern Territory is the town of Katherine.

It is 320 kilometres south east of Darwin and is most popularly known for Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) and various places where you can swim in natural hot springs. This is another region where you could easily spend a week or more enjoying these aspects alone.

When we have visited previously we’ve toured through Katherine Gorge and it’s always a spectacular natural landscape to see but on our last holiday, we spent time discovering some new to us experiences and revisited some other favourite places.

Daly Waters Pub

6 Comments

No journey up or down the Stuart Highway through the centre of Australia is complete without visiting the Daly Waters Historic Pub. You will see a few Aussie pubs with some similarities to the Daly Waters, where travellers leave their mark. And by leave their mark, I mean the walls, bar and ceiling and in fact any space available is covered in business cards, hats, bras…you name it, it’s probably hanging there!
